(Surprise) Upcycled Treasury Contest


We've had a sudden burst in Team Treasuries over the past week. The Etsy Treasury is a member curated shopping gallery. Treasuries feature 16 shops and generally have an overall theme or style.  Team Treasuries featured only upcycled shops, and I am always amazed by the creativity and originality of our members! 


Here are FIVE Upcycled treasuries to start off your Monday! The best part you can vote on your favorite collection!!!
